MBCI Deploys New AIA CEU, Air Barrier Applications Utilizing Insulated Metal Panels
In December, MBCI launched a new AIA approved course, Air Barrier Applications Utilizing Insulated Metal Panels. This course provides guidance for architects and builders on design and installation considerations related to the use of Insulated Metal Panels and their suitability as the air barrier assembly of a building envelope.
With the aid of this lesson, architects and builders will be armed with increased knowledge regarding enclosures and their component parts, the various options available, the relative advantages of insulated metal panels, particularly under certain circumstances, and key specifics and guidelines for specifying metal panels for code conformance.
The written course (ARDEC2016.3) offers one learning unit hour for AIA Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW). It is published in December’s issue of Architect Magazine, and online at MBCI’s Metal Institute.
Additional educational resources for insulated metal panels can be found on MBCI’s blog.
